View & Voice: A Film and Discussion Series on Race and Difference.
This series is made up of a host of provocative documentary and/or feature films that address issues of race, culture and social difference. The films are used as a catalyst for discussion in an effort to heighten awareness and promote understanding among members of the Wesleyan and surrounding community.
Intercultural Relations Programs Planning Committee.

African-American Alumni Weekend Celebration.
The African-American Alumni Weekend Celebration is a Biennial event occurring once every two years. During this weekend, African-American Alumni return to Wesleyan's campus to meet and fellowship with Wesleyan's current African-American students. Many alumni have formed mentoring relationships with current students and assist Wesleyan in its effort to recruit more African-American students to Wesleyan's campus.
B.A.M. (Black Awareness Month)
While West Virginia Wesleyan is committed to raising the consciousness of its entire community throughout the academic year, there are specific times of the year when we highlight the history and contributions of various groups in the tradition of celebration and appreciation through programs and events. Black Awareness Month is one such highlighted time. The Office of Intercultural Relations in collaboration with the Office of Campus Activities coordinates programs and activities during the month of February designed to heighten awareness and increase understanding.
Intercultural Relations Awards Program
The Office of Intercultural Relations includes in mission the development of leadership skills and standing students of color award certificates and plaques in recognition of their leadership skills, academic accomplishments and community service contributions. During the program, seniors are presented with ethnic printed graduation stoles among Wesleyan's students of color. Near the close of each academic year, the Office of Intercultural Relations hosts an awards program, where it bestows upon out.
